Alright, not knowing anything at all about you, your coach, the rules, etc. Here is a super-generic template you can use to prepare for prepare for an amateur match in just about any combat sport.

Minimum of 6 weeks fight-training program

Week One and Two:

Run for distance/time. You should be getting in 30 min's of roadwork a minimum of 5 days a week.

You should be in the gym a minimum of 5 days a week as well. Focus on the heavy bag and conditioning work. Some padwork and sparring.

Weeks Three and Four:

Assuming you are running 5 days a week like you're supposed to, you should now swap out every other day for runs that include hills and/or stairs, plus adding in running drills like boxing as you run, cherry pickers, running backwards, etc.

You should now have a 50/50 mix of heavy bag and working the pads/mitts in the gym. Again, you should be in the gym a minimum of 5 days a week. You should sparring a few rounds each day with full gear on.

Weeks Five and Six:

Now when you run, you should be running sprints. My recommendation is that you run 50 yard/meter dashes, then turn around and slow jog back to your original position, then turn and sprint again. You never stop for a break.... sprint, jog, sprint, jog, sprint, jog. You should be able to do a minimum of 15-20 of these.

In the gym, you should be working the pads/mitts almost exclusively. Just a little bit of heavy bag work and your sparring should now focus on speed and timing, not power.

You should give yourself the last 2 days before the fight for an active rest/recovery. No heavy bag, intense conditioning, or sparring. You should skip rope, go on short jogs, shadowbox, and review of strategy with your coach.

1. Walk into gym.

2. Locate coach.

3. Say "coach, what should I be doing to prep for this fight?".

4. Do what coach says.

5. PROFIT!

 This is amazingly spot on!
